For Immediate Release Contact: Brit Bender | Tennessee Democratic Party | 319 Plus Park Blvd., Suite 202, Nashville, TN 37217 | Office: (615) 327–9779 |

After spending his career attempting to ruin the lives of others through heinous legislation, disgraced Republican State Senator Brian Kelsey has pleaded guilty to committing two federal crimes. Brian Kelsey should not be given a slap on the wrist but should face the maximum penalty for his crimes, especially after vehemently lying about his innocence. His actions are a reminder of the dangerous hypocrisy and mistruth that the Republican Party is willing to uphold for the sake of power and corruption.
